Gênero. Universalidade das ciências. Conhecimentos situados


Apoiado em ampla bibliografia internacional, este artigo discute a contribuição dos estudos de gênero para uma análise crítica do conceito de ciência universal. As intersecções entre estudos de gênero e ciências tratam do papel do saber científico – apreendido como objetivo e neutro – na construção do natural, definido como entidade claramente separada do cultural ou do social.


Based upon a wide international bibliographical survey, this paper discusses the contribution of gender studies to a critical analysis of
the concept of universal science. The intersections between gender studies and sciences deal with the role of scientific knowledge - given as objective and neutral – in the construction of the natural, defined as an entity clearly separated from cultural or social realms.
